Holybrook Festival 2017

 
 SUNDAY 25TH JUNE

 

Celebrating with a World Athletics theme and supporting Daisy's Dream Charity, you will notice some exciting changes this year.

Try your hand at the new craze sweeping the nation, disc golf or have a go at archery and perhaps you would prefer the Junk Percussion.  Whatever you are into, there will be something at the Holybrook Festival for you, your family and friends. 

The Festival Team are delighted that, as well as new entertainments, some of the old favourites will be returning: BBQ, Beer Tent, Grand Prize Draw, Stalls, Fun Fair, Dog show and much, much more.

Don't forget there will also be stalls where you will be able to undertake a little summer shopping!

Looking back at Holybrook Festival 2016 and looking forward to Festival 2017!

 Holybrook Festival 

As you may know, Holybrook Festival celebrated its 10th Anniversary on the 19th June 2016.  We were so lucky with the weather once again, with it staying dry from when Alok Sharma MP officially opened the Festival until a few spots of rain fell when the Festival was being cleaned up at the end of the day.

It appeared that everyone that came enjoyed themselves. The Festival Committee would like to share some of the comments that they have received:

“Good family afternoon out”

“Great atmosphere, always a safe and welcoming environment for families to attend”
“There is always a fantastic community feel”

“It’s a lovely family event, well supported by local people. I am always happy to come back every year”

“Friendly, safe, fun, festival”

“A chance to engage with the local community in particular with the children making music”

Our SPECIAL thanks goes to the following organisations:

- IKEA for helping to set and clear up the festival

- Procision Football Coaching for organising the Mini Football Tournament
- K9 Planet for organising the Dog Display and Dog Show, and supplying the PA system.

We also offer a BIG thank you to all the stallholders and volunteers that helped on the day.  Along with the people and businesses that supplied the prizes for our Grand Draw.

The Brain Tumour Charity was supported at this years Festival and we thank you for putting your money in their buckets. We are delighted to announce that an absolutely fantastic £322 was raised.

  New committee members are always welcome and volunteers are also needed to make the day run smoothly.  The Holybrook Festival is a fantastic opportunity for you to get involved in your local community.  If this is something that you would be interested in why not come along to one of our meetings.

The Holybrook Festival is held in the Linear Park each summer. It has become a landmark event and important resource for local community groups and charities to raise funds and awareness. But, more importantly, it is an event that stemmed from the original Holybrook Parish Plan where all the different areas of our large and diverse community can come together and share a fun filled day.
